The Lobby Lounge at the Fairmont Pacific Rim is open and airy with expanses of white marble covering the floor, walls, and floor to ceiling pillars, creating beautiful grey veined motifs which lend an inherent luxury to the space. A central fireplace warms the vast room which also has a smaller, intimate bar area tucked into the back corner by the grand staircase. Drinking a glass of red by the fireplace in the winter is cozy, having a crisp, bright, and boozy, expertly prepared margarita at the bar feels like summer in a glass. Their bar menu has a wide variety of snacks and meals but the sushi is a favourite – delicate and elegant, the B.C. roll I had was delicious. While I go for the drinks, I should mention their coffee service is a treat: it will arrive with flavoured lollipops of chocolate or vanilla to stir in, and other bite-sized treats to enjoy. The Lobby Lounge boasts about their piano, a Fazioli, apparently known as the “Ferrari” of pianos and they have programmed nightly live entertainment to show it off. I’m not a huge fan of live music while I drink, because don’t want to be distracted from my beverage, but I’ll still go for the cocktails and wine! (EL)
